The town, which is nestled in the hilly region of Barbagia, hopes that this stunt will breathe new life into it. It's on the brink of becoming a ghost town, as younger residents have fled to bigger cities. According to CNN, the population has dropped from 2,250 to 1,300 in the past few years. The job prospects in the area are fairly limited, so this would be a particularly great opportunity if you can work remotely.
Unlike similar offers that've been made by other towns in Italy hoping to attract new residents, this one isn't exclusive to Italian residents. In fact, Ollolai's mayor says that three sales have already been finalized, and that they've received over 100 inquires from all over the world.
If you're interested, feel free to shoot them a note directly via the special website the town set up -- though it might help to find an Italian speaker to help you out.
